Last time i got my period was in august and previous to that was 2 years ago. it is now october and no period since. My doctor prescribed me sprintec and told me to take them on sunday after my period. But when should i start taking them if i see no period? Should i wait til God knows when to take them or should i just start right away? Btw ive always had irregular periods.

Hello, Brenda! How are you?

According to FDA directions, you can start them at any time, but if it is not on the first or second day of your period, you cannot rely on them to prevent pregnancy, until you have taken them for a full 7 days, so for that first week, you'll need to use a backup form of protection.

The typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and spotting.

I am not a doctor, and it is always better to follow your doctor's instructions, I am just providing you with the additional usage details.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I was on sprinted for a year when my script ran out. It wasn't refilled until the week after my period in July. I had intercourse on July 19th & 24th using VCF. It is now Aug 19th, 3 negative pregnancy tests and no period. When can I start my new pack?
